FOSTORIA — AgCredit, one of northern Ohio’s largest lenders for farmers, rural homeowners and agribusiness, has announced the recipients of its 2020 Mission Fund.
Applicants were selected to receive funding based on meeting criteria in four focus areas: education, environment, technology and quality of rural life.
This year’s grant recipients from this area are:
• Miller City FFA Alumni, Putnam County, $15,000. Funds will be used to create “The City Gardens,” a community garden at the school to provide hands on education for grades K-12.
• Putnam County Goat and Sheep Committee, Putnam County, $15,000. Funds will be used to purchase new pens for the goats and sheep at the Putnam County Fairgrounds.
Organizations can apply for Mission Fund grants for up to $15,000 per year. The 2021 application process will begin in March.
